Did Trump Just Order Sessions to End Russia Probe?

CNBC: “President Donald Trump on Wednesday called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end Robert Mueller’s Russia probe immediately, escalating his attacks on the inquiry.”

“Trump has attacked Sessions several times for his recusal. In June, the president wrote in a post on Twitter that Mueller was continuing to investigate ‘all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself.'”

“The president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in a statement to NBC News Wednesday afternoon that the president ‘was expressing his opinion’ and that ‘no Presidential order was issued or will be.'”

“The White House did not respond to a request to elaborate on the president’s remarks. The office of the special counsel and the Department of Justice declined to comment.”

“California congressman Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, called the president’s tweet ‘an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight.'”
